Acne is created by oil, dirt, and dead skin cells clogging your pores and resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, or inflamed bumps under your skin. It always seem to show up at the worse time and last way longer than you want it to.
What causes Acne?
Acne is caused by your pores being blocked and your skin oil glands (sebaceous glands) overproducing oil, also known as sebum. Bacteria gets trapped in the pores and creates painful inflammation in the form of red bumps. Acne can be trigger by stress, hormones, and foods we eat.
How can Hemp Heal help reduce acne breakouts?
While it may seem counter-intuitive to apply more oil to your skin but appling our tinctures topically can actually help. The two ingredients in our tinctures work together to unclog your pores, balance oil production, and reduce your chance of a breakout.
Unlike most oils which further clog your pores, hemp seed oil does the opposite. With a 0 on the comedogenic scale, hemp seed oil will in no way clog your pores but instead help to balance your skin.
The active ingredient in our tinctures work by connecting with your endocannabinoid system and the receptors in your sebaceous glands. When our tinctures interact with your glands it can help regulate oil production to reduce your chances of having a breakout. It also helps to reduce the inflammation caused by acne which clear up your acne faster.
Taking our tinctures daily can also help keep acne from forming in the first place by helping to balance out hormones and reducing stress levels (a common cause of acne).
